You will get flamed for this, and rightly so.
All that these maintainer, your's truly included, do is to use mailcrypt to
PGP sign a posting. Emacs doesn't even know what an attachment is. Too bad
for pine, or rather the pine user, if this encoding isn't recognised
We won't get anywhere with this discussion. We heard it all before. Pine
exists, and some users will want it. Such is life. Let's not unload our
frustation with an upstream design issue on the Debian maintainer. We all
have things to do.
